  1. Why would they destroy it?

    1961 Buick Flamingo - GM introduced the 1961 Olds Starfire, don't know why this wasn't viable also??

    Currently delivering parts for NAPA, before that I did same for Parts Plus, they like to get over 200,000 miles on vehicles. I am here to tell you that both places never use ANY additives in their fleet.

  10. 1956 Special Speedometer

    I watched a YouTube regarding removal of speedometer from a 1956 model. The guy claimed most efficient method was to remove the top of the dash, as there was too much in the way on the underneath, anyone with experience?
  11. Mr. Earl's 1954's

    No, certainly didn't trade every year. Dad never had a new one. These showed up on local used car lot I guess.

  15. Mr. Earl's 1954's

    Just read your impressive list of cars. I learned to drive on a 1954 Super 2-dr hardtop, burgundy with white top. Got my license and then Dad had a 1954 Century 4-dr sedan, 2-tone green, the seller said he had just installed a brand new 4-bbl carb, all of $70 !!. I mentioned the Century as a major part of a remembrance on a Facebook family page which I called "Once We Lived Large", in 1964 we went to Chicago and stayed at a major hotel - Goldwater's VP running mate was staying at this hotel !! My one strong remembrance of the trip was a uniformed doorman driving our 10 year old car away from the front door area. (We were more of a Super 8 family). And the car was a bit weather beaten looking.
